NEW MEMBERS - SIGN IN HERE PLEASE / Hello from Burton on Trent!
« Last post by Oddblk on July 29, 2019, 08:22:44 PM »
Hi everyone!

I signed-up to this forum over a year ago ... but it looks like I never posted a "hello" message! Shocking ...

So: hello! :)

I'm a fat, balding middle-aged bloke who gets far too excited by BBC Micros, and has a grudging distrust of anything with more than 2MB of RAM. I like my retro gaming, plus some programming and electronics. I'm also a game-developer by profession, but that's very different to playing games that I *want* to play. It's polygons at work, but sprites at home. :)

I'm in Winshill, Burton upon Trent.

Nice to meet you all!

Kris.

Put myself and Eleanor down as tentative. Her calendar says we're free that weekend, but you never know between now and then :)

9 years later.
I used to visit a shop literally a few doors further down the same road the RetroComputerMuseum is on.
I bought my A1200 ppc accelerator there plus many more parts.
I cannot remember the owners name but i wonder if he is linked to this Museum at all.

Hello I`m Mark,

I have been interested in the Amiga since about 1988 and used to visit the shop on the industrial estate where the Museum is based.
I live in Melton Mowbray not to far away and might pay a visit next week.
I have a few Amigas such as A500,A1200s one of which is towered with a 060/ppc 233 grex voodoo and an A1xe.
I also like stripping,cleaning,upgrading pcs then running Linux on them.
